Nékter Juice Bar

Committed to bringing the most robust, health-conscious foods to its customers, this smoothie bar has it all. Alexis and Steve Schulze co-founded Nékter Juice Bar in 2010. According to Iconic Life, Alexis grew up a vegetarian but didn't enjoy vegetables as a child. However, as an adult, she discovered new recipes and ways of healthy eating. Noticing a need in the market, Alexis and Steve teamed up to create Nékter Juice Bar. They were driven to deliver the health benefits of smoothies and juices using their own recipes, and the company soon began to franchise. 

Now, with stores across the United States (130 shops from Florida to Colorado), Austin's downtown location is in the Seaholm District. This crisp and modern shop has a calming atmosphere, thanks partly to the beautiful green tiling on the front of the bar. With an open preparation area, you can see the Nékter staff whip up your smoothie.

Nékter Juice Bar offers bowls and wellness shots along with its liquid lines. For smoothies, there are regular smoothies and functional smoothie lines. Regular smoothies are berry and fruit based with juice, cashew milk, coconut water, and agave nectar. Functional smoothies offer immunity-boosting and energy-boosting drinks. The smoothie stop also has very simple smoothies like the Orange Crush flavor with orange juice, strawberry, and agave nectar, as well as more complex smoothies like the Tropical Cooler with spinach, kale, pineapple, banana, coconut flakes, and coconut water. 


First opening in 2011, this Austin-based smoothie bar has grown quite a bit since then. JuiceLand's Matt Shook has opened many locations throughout Austin, Dallas, and Houston. JuiceLand's nourishment goes beyond great food, stretching into maintaining a healthy environment and giving back to the community. JuiceLand's smoothies never include sugar or ice and come in 100% composting-friendly packaging.

JuiceLand values are creating a fun, welcoming, energetic, refreshing, mindful, and exceptional environment for its customers and staff. The locations throughout Austin are bright, welcoming, and whimsical in their design style. Some locations offer energetic murals spanning entire walls, while others project a cool, confident, laid-back vibe that is sure to follow you home.

In 2001, Shook premiered his first special, the Originator. It includes apples, bananas, blueberries, cherries, peanut butter, brown rice protein, and spirulina. It'll work to fill you up, support immunity, and provide a healthy dose of antioxidants. The Wundershowzen smoothie is one of the most popular smoothies JuiceLand offers. It's a blend of almond milk, banana, hemp protein, and peanut butter, offering a protein boost and a delicious superfood boost. If you're searching for that morning pick me up, the Morning Sunshine may be just the ticket with pineapple, orange, banana, mango, goji berry, and local bee pollen.

Smoothie King

Not only is Smoothie king one of the most keto-friendly chain restaurants that you can fill up at, but this smoothie spot has a mission of inspiring others. Smoothie King dates back to 1973 when Steve Kuhnau blended up his first smoothie, but it wasn't until 1989 that he opened his first location in New Orleans, but by 2003, the franchise had become international with locations in South Korea. 2014 brought another massive evolution for the company when the New Orleans' Smoothie King Center opened as home to the New Orleans Pelicans. Today, there are over 1,000 locations across three continents, and Austin has several stores.

Popular Smoothie King menu items include Feel Energized Blends, Get Fit Blends, Manage Weight Blends, Be Well Blends, Enjoy a Treat Blends, and Kids' Blends. If you're looking for a smoothie that looks after your overall health, the Daily Warrior is a great pick. With bananas, blueberries, an apple blueberry juice blend, dates, peanut butter, almonds, Stevia sweetener, and organic spinach, this smoothie promises to be the perfect choice for self-care and looking after your vitamin intake. To help you get your dose of daily greens, Smoothie King offers a Slim-N-Trim Veggie smoothie. This mighty mix includes kale, spinach, ginger, mangoes, bananas, vanilla protein, a fiber blend, and apple pineapple juice.


Jumba got its start in 1990 as a college project by Kirk Perron, a student at California Polytechnic State University. Over the next several decades, the concept grew and even reached 800 locations across the country. As the untold truth of Jamba Juice histories, Herron originally got the idea for Jamba after becoming a frequent flyer to a juice shop called Blazing Blender.

Though there are certainly Jamba favorites that have been around since the beginning, it is constantly innovating new recipes to treat customers. For example, Jamba offers a smoothie called Pumpkin Smash during the fall. This delightful fall smoothie includes milk, frozen yogurt, and a pumpkin spice base. Customers can also choose to switch out the cow's milk for popular dairy alternatives and oat milk frozen dessert to make this one vegan friendly. The Mango-a-Go-Go would be a great pick for something popular and delightfully tropical. This one has a tropical juice blend, mangoes, and pineapple sherbet.

Soup Peddler Real Food & Juice Bar

This popular smoothie and soup stop starts with a bicycle. David Ansel created Soup Peddler Real Food & Juice Bar originally from his home. Then, he delivered his soups to committed patrons via bicycle. That's where the name originally comes from. In 2010, David opened a store, and his soup and smoothie bar has only grown in popularity.

You'll find several locations throughout Austin, including two in South Austin, which operate as small buildings with a great outdoor dining area. Characteristic white picnic tables with teal umbrellas and plenty of space for relaxing and enjoying the sunshine are abundant. At the South Lamar District location, Soup Peddler even offers fun riding toys for your youngsters to play on as you enjoy your smoothie. The indoor sights are just as laid back and welcoming.

With unique smoothie names, the Soup Peddler offers many different kinds of smoothies, including the Magic Carpet Ride with fruit flavors of cherry and banana, paired with pistachios, tahini, and sumac, and blended with coconut water. The Business Time smoothie is the perfect pick-me-up for that middle-of-the-day slump with cold-brewed espresso, banana, peanut butter, raw honey, cacao, and blended up with rice milk. Soup Peddler also has green options like the Green Monster, a smoothie packed with broccoli, spinach, banana, and peanut butter then blended with coconut water.


This juice and smoothie bar started small in 2010 with only 25 square feet of storefront. Now, Pressed has a great line of juice cleanses and smoothies with an online store and brick-and-mortar shops, with a couple located in Austin. You can purchase bottles of juices and cleanses at the in-store location, but you can also pick up a freshly made smoothie.

The Strawberry Orange Mango Smoothie is a delicious blend of fruit with a healthy dose of Vitamin C to help boost your immune system. The Avocado Smoothie with Greens could become your go-to if you're a matcha lover. With greens like spinach and kale, this smoothie also includes matcha, bananas, and avocados for a deliciously smooth taste. Pressed's Chocolate Banana Protein Smoothie is the perfect choice if you're looking to power through your day with a bit of extra energy. With bananas, cocoa powder, almond butter, and pea protein, this one can help kick that tired spell to the curb.

SunLife Organics

This is a smoothie bar with a mission to ensure that all of its customers feel loved, inspired, and healed. SunLife Organics comes from the hearts and minds of founder Khalil Rafati and cofounder Hayley Gorcey. Together, they discovered a healthful lifestyle that goes beyond eating good food and abundant fruits and vegetables. In 2011, Rafati and Gorcey opened the first SunLife Organic in Malibu. SunLife Organics has a location in Austin, as well as many other cities across the country, and a high-powered online store as well.

Daily Juice Cafe

Joanie Frieden's mission to help customers create a healthy, sustainable, active lifestyle drives Daily Juice Cafe. Original to Austin, this smoothie bar began in 2012 as Austin Skinny Limits.

If you're looking for more of a meal-type option, check out the Peanut Paradise with peanut butter, banana, yogurt, and protein. This is the perfect stop to grab a delicious sandwich and smoothie.

Kale Me Crazy

This smoothie bar has so much more to offer than smoothies, but those certainly stand out too. Kale Me Crazy prides itself as a superfood cafe, delivering meals to support its customers' healthy, energetic lifestyles. The founder and CEO of Kale Me Crazy, Roi Shlomo, opened the first store in 2013, and its demand hasn't dwindled.

Except for one offering, all smoothies from Kale Me Crazy are vegan. Though it offers many delicious options, the Power House packs quite a punch with a delightful blend of fruits, cashews, flax seed, almond milk, and vegan protein. Just sweet enough, it's sure to give you the punch you need to power through your day. Try out the Super Matcha if you're looking for a green tea fix. This blend of matcha green tea, banana, blueberries, spinach, chia, agave, and almond milk may make you a regular customer.

Mr. Natural

This smoothie stop has been an Austin favorite since 1988 and continues to attract devoted customers. Mr. Natural offers a vegetarian and vegan menu of fresh ingredients and family recipes. Since the beginning, Mr. Natural has provided the Austin community with a menu of nutrious options designed to help customers enjoy a delicious, healthy lifestyle right in their own neighborhood.

You can also customize any of the Mr. Natural smoothies to suit your needs or cravings by customizing the ingredients.


This smoothie spot is dedicated to bringing customers the absolute freshest ingredients possible. Jugo works with local farms to bring regionally grown and sourced ingredients to its shops. If Jugo has produce that it does not use, it composts the excess and returns it to agriculture providers. To ensure that recipes have as minimal a footprint as possible, it carefully creates recipes using seasonal and local ingredients, so the menu sees some rotation throughout the year.

You'll find Jugo in downtown Austin, and you'll know you've made it when you spot the bright pink (and oh so Instagramable) neon sign. With wooden floors, roughly painted brick, and visible pipes and tubing, Jugo is picturesque from every angle. This space is cool and relaxed. You'll love looking around and checking out all the healthful treats it offers in old-fashioned glass candy jars.

Jugo offers juice, smoothies, food, coffee, and tea, with quite a range of smoothies to choose from. Give the banana, peanut butter, cocoa, date, and coffee smoothie a go if you love the taste of peanut butter. Between the nuttiness of the peanut butter and the little perk of coffee, be warned that this may become a favorite morning tradition. Not to mention, with the protein from the peanut butter and date, this one will probably fill you right up. 

Teapioca Lounge

This smoothie bar has an extensive menu that is sure to offer something for all customers. Teapioca Lounge might specialize in tea, as its name suggests, but the smoothies are incredible too. With a menu of flavors featuring everything from fruity to earthy, you'll be back time and time again to give it all a try. Although this is not the hippest smoothie shop in ATX, Teapioca thrives on being a comfortable and unbuttoned spot to visit. The staff's friendly attitude makes eating nutritious food feel approachable and warm — even when it's blended cold. 

If you're looking for a fruity flavor, consider the Pomegranate Smoothie or classic Orange Smoothie. The M&M Smoothie is sure to satiate that sweet tooth, and the Peppermint Smoothie would put anyone in the wintery spirit. You can also order many different types of add-ons, including a humble yet massive amount of bubble tea combinations that star a classic tapioca boba or flavored gelatin boba. Taro root is more versatile than you think, and sure enough, Teapioca Lounge utilizes the unique plant in a Taro Coconut Smoothie that pays homage to the traditional milk tea flavor. Either of those, with the addition of tapioca boba, may very well be the perfect smoothie order from the Teapioca Lounge.

Blenders and Bowls

This smoothie stop started with a craving. In 2010, Kara Jordan and Erin Thompson moved from Hawaii to Austin, and though they loved their new city, they missed their beloved açaí bowls from Hawaii. Soon, they created Blenders and Bowls with a food truck concept and began selling smoothies. Sure enough, the brand's turquoise accents, reminiscent of Pacific waters, started a popular trend. The lush vibe of the company called in fresh eaters, and ten years later, Blenders and Bowls has opened five stores. Its products are now even in grocery stores around the country.

You'll find three different locations throughout Austin: Westlake, Eastside, and North Lamar. These smoothie bars offer plenty of seating with a very natural aesthetic of white walls, concrete floors, modern seating, basket lamps, greenery, and eclectic pillows.

Blenders and Bowls offer 12 varieties of smoothies. The magenta pink Power Potion smoothie brings all the goodness of bananas, pineapple, and peanut butter, then packs it with dragon fruit, vanilla, protein, and vanilla almond milk. If you're hoping for even more of a fruity option, look no further than the Go Mango smoothie with banana, mango, and guava juice. The Founders Fave smoothie with strawberry, banana, açaí, and apple juice may just be your favorite too. If you follow a vegan diet or want to avoid dairy, you'll be happy to learn that all Blenders and Bowls smoothies are vegan with dairy-free milk.
